Pola Negri: Temptress of Silent Hollywood
Sergio Delgado

Femme fatale Pola Negri (1897–1987) was one of the great stars of the silent film era, an actress whose personal story of hardships and successes, loves and tragedies is more compelling than most Hollywood dramas. Yet today she is largely overlooked, her name tarnished by myths and scandals.

Taking a fresh look at her life and career, this book debunks the myths and gossip, presenting a candid portrait of one of the silent screen’s most sensational leading ladies.

Rare photographs are included, along with in-depth discussions of her films.
